Sweet Potato leaves are edible?

Hi, I am growing sweet potatoes and has beautiful green leaves. Are these leaves edible like spinach?

    Google says yes.  I've never thought to even wonder.. eat some and let us know how they taste.

    Hello @jyotijshah   They are edible.  I grew sweet potato last year (successfully) and tried some recipes with the leaves.    Like any green leaf - treat it like spinach etc. fried or boiled or  in a gratin with pasta....    Choose the younger leaves.  They are full of nutrients.
    Bon appétit!!
